The Outer Worlds is a sci-fi RPG developed by Obsidian Entertainment and published by Private Division for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
The game takes place on the last frontier of space, as corporate interests encroach on that frontier. It is pitched as coming from "the original developers" of Fallout and with a style similar to Fallout: New Vegas, another Obsidian-developed RPG.
The game was announced at the 2018 Game Awards.
Originally announced as coming first to Steam and the Microsoft Store on PC, in March 2019 Obsidian revealed that the game will initially release on the Epic Store and Microsoft Store on PC exclusively for a year before appearing on other PC storefronts. This announcement did not affect the console release plans.
